Jacksonville Florida repower

If anyone has a recommendation for a boatyard or diesel person to handle a repower in about a month in Jacksonville, I would appreciate a referral. Also need a rigger and a welder to fix some stantions. Google only gives me information for people too busy to return phone calls. I thought the marine industry was in a recession and people would be looking for customers.

Re: Jacksonville Florida repower

I watched the guys who have a shop in downtown Green Cove Springs do a swap and they got right to it. They are mobile. I watched the rigger who I think comes from Gainesville do some work and I was not very impressed.

Check out Tiger Point Marina in Fernandina. That is a working mans boatyard.

Re: Jacksonville Florida repower

I and others have had good luck with Julian Crisp (Sparman) for your rigging. He can be reached at (352) 222.3647.

Thomas with T&A portable welding has done good work for me in the past. His number is (386) 546.9086

What type of engines are you looking to repower/rebuild?

Replace BMW 35 with Beta Marine 60


Sent from an undisclosed location on the high seas or from the lounge chair by the pool, you decide.
